Bruner. of Erie, Pa., who has been giving flying exhibitions at the County Fair, was killed this afternoon when his plane fell while he was flying over the fair grounds. Bruner had made two flights today previous to the one which resulted in the fatality. Bruner had made a trip to Smiths Mills and returned from this trip at about 2:30. He again went up as Senator Poindexter began speaking and after flying for about five minutes was returning to the landing field just outside the fair grounds. He was about 300 feet in the air when his plane slanted toward the ground with the motor running and the spectators thought that he was performing a stunt. The plane kept on diving, however, until h struck the ground, burying itself in the race track. For Hard or Soft Corns.

For You Bruner was extricated from the wreckage, still breathing, and was hurried to the Brooks Memorial hospital. He died shortly after arriving at the hospital without having regained consciousness. Coroner Charles Blood took charge of the remains. Relatives came from Erie this evening and took the body to that city. Bruner was 22 years of age and is survived by his parents and a sister. The plane which the aviator was using was a Curtiss exhibition plane of an old pattern. Two service men who examined the plane said that they believed that the wire which regulated the altitude of the plane must have broken, making it impossible for Bruner to stop the plane in its downward pluDge. The airplane was the property of Barney Benus, of Cleveland, also a flyer. Benus was on the grounds and witnessed the accident ' He had been flying for three years and had made over 400 flights in the machine. He was in the United States aviation service during the war, serving in some of the aviation camps in this country.

Cramer was badly cut about the head and Mechanic Stroup received several bruises this morning at 8:30 o'clock when their airplane struck the limbs of a tree here and fell to the ground a complete wreck. The accident happened just as the aviators were starting on a flight to Bradford. The machine was valued at $6,000. That's what has happened. But we bought early and we're going to see that you pet the benefit of our early buying. We're basing our prices on what we paid months ago not on the present market prices. versity, and in 1917 was chosen as Lyman Beecher lecturer at Yale. It is his first time since becoming bishop to preside over the Erie Conference session. ber of Commerce, is president of the Board of Directors of the Corry Hospital, and a trustee of the Allegheny College and Edinboro Normal. The causes oi the wreck wete the wind and the plane's machinery. Soon after the airplane had left the ground the tail in some manner swerved and hit the top of a tree. The machine doubled up and the tail pinched the men in. The machine fell to the ground and was smashed. The men were taken to the cottage of S. H. Putnam where Dr. James H. Kellogg attended them. On five former occasions Franklin entertained the Erie Conference—in 1853, with Bishop O. C. Baker presiding; in 1869, with Bishop E. R. Ames presiding; in 1889 with Bishop C. D. Foss; in 1898, Bis hop Merrill; in 1910, with Bishop Neely. and now for the sixth time with Bishop McDowell. Franklin is a very central place in the conference territory and doubtless many of the ministers will ar rive by automobile instead of the train. Franklin was never so well equipped for entertaining the conference as at present with their new, beautiful, commodious church, the finest and best equipped in the conference. Herbert G. Eaton, of Warren, Pa., is a'to a candidate. He is widely known throughout the conference as the efficient treasurer of the District Superintendent's Fund, and a member of the Finance Committee. Dr. W. M. Fierce, the superintendent of the Ridgeway public school?, is also a candidate. Hart Schaffner & Marx made the clothes; nobody can make better ones. They're all-wool, carefully made; stylish, guaranteed to satisfy you. Lieut. Cramer with Lieut. Emery have been giving flights in this vicinity for some time. Today they had just started for Bradford where they were planning to give exhibition flights at the fair and take up passengers when the accident occurred. If possible the men will try to get a new airplane and continue the flights although it will not be for some time because of the injuries they received. stunts. If the plane had gone 30 feet further it would have crashed into the crewd of spectators. The accident occurred within a stone's throw of where United States Senator Poindexter was speaking. It nearly caused a panic among the 10,000 people who were in attendance at the fair today. Two women who were near the grandstand fainted. Bruner made his first flight at the Erie County Fair at Erie three years ago and since that time has been flying on holidays and making the circuit of county fairs. When not flying he was employed at the plant of the American Brakeshoe & Foundry Company at Erie. Dr. S. W. McDowell, of the Rockland M. E. church, is announced as a candidate. Dr. McDowell has the pleasure of representing a charge from whose influence 17 men have gone into the ministry. You'd be getting a good big money's worth if we did ask present market prices. Prof. Wm. A. Elliot, of Allegheny Coilege, represents the Stone church of Meadville, is announced as a candidate for the General Conference of 1920. But we're not. And that makes it $5 or $10 better for you. In organizing the conference it is very probable that Dr. W. P. Graham, of North Girard. Pa., will be re elected secretary, as he has already served the conference in that office for 21 years. A more efficient and systematic secretary would be hard to find. Rev. C. H. Frampton, of Oil City, is very likely to be re-elected statistician and Rev. J. H. Hilliard. of Chicera. will be the treasurer. Rev. Mr. Hilliard has had many years of experience in this trying and responsible office through which large funds pass each conference session. It is stated that Bishop William Burt of Buffalo, and Bishop Joseph F. Berry, of Philadelphia, will also be in attendance during conference week. CLEANING, PRESSING and REPAIRING NEATLY Gave Exhibition Wednesday Night DONE. PRICES REASONABLE Some four or five of the young ministers who were serving as chaplains, or in the Y. M. C. A. work, will agaio request the appointment to some charge and •»- sume the work of the pastorate. Benny Reeves, the handcuff king, who was giving daily performances at the county fair, gave an exhibition here last Wednesday evening to a crowd of several hundred people. Suspended in mid-air from the roof of the Welch block, opposite the park, he freed himself from a straight jacket in a little less than a minute. The performance was given shortly after the conclusion of the annual supper given to the Westfield firemen in Motor Inn. CONFERENCE AT FRANKLIN.
